If cowls aren't the hot item this season, I don't know what is. They're quick, easy (or hard if you like), take less yarn than a scarf, and of course are very trendy.
One favourite at work is the Honey Cowl from Madelinetosh. In fact, I just finished knitting my second one.
This one was knit in Tosh Sport, in the Jade colourway. I cast on an extra 10 stitches. The fabric is particularly drapey - a bit more open and looser than expected, but it is just fantastic when all is said and done.
Oh, and did I mention the colour? Just fantastic.

Have you ever had a moment of true realization? A moment where something happens or someone says something and you just stop and go 'Ah' and acknowledge a deep truth about yourself? Well I had one of these moments just now, when I picked up a copy of 'Cast On, Bind Off: 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting'. To say I got ever so slightly over excited would be an apt description. To say I grinned like an idiot while clutching it to my chest would be an honest description. As they say, knowledge is power, and apparently I want to know ALL the things (at least when it comes to knitting - my ignorance elsewhere is highly prized).
